updated 08:45 pm EDT, Thu October 4, 2012

Three-foot wide speaker boasts full 2.1 surround sound

B&O Play has announced the launch of its latest active speaker system, the BeoPlay A9. The BeoPlay A9 features a 2.1 bass reflex loudspeaker system that uses five dedicated speaker units and amps to create a complete sound solution. BeoPlay A9 features a fine-tuned DSP (digital signal processor) algorithm integrated with Adaptive Bass Linearization technology for enhanced bass and music playback fidelity.

The new speaker system is both an AirPlay and DLNA receiver. It packs two 0.75-inch tweeters and two three-inch midrange units, all four driven by separate 80-watt class D amplifiers. An eight-inch bass unit, powered by 160 watts from its own class D amplifier is hidden behind the unit. Three pre-set sound modes for wall, corner or freestanding positions optimize acoustic performance depending on where the BeoPlay A9 is installed.

Prices begin at USD $2,699. BeoPlay A9 will be available at Bang & Olufsen stores, the B&O PLAY online store, the Apple online store, and design stores in select markets from second half of November 2012.
